Description An unusual English early 19th century Regency period centre table, attributed to Gillows of Lancaster and London,

circa 1820's.

Why we like it

Its rare and unusual, almost architectural shape of the base, evoking 16th century Renaissance designs, and a delightfully virtuoso (original) faux-bois decoration, combined with its untouched, faded condition, make this table a unique and interesting example of its kind. Understated and masculine, this versatile cetre table is superbly proportioned to make a functional hall table or a smart dining table for an intimate party of up to four.

This distinctive design with beaded-edge concave quatrefirm base, raised on curved legs, and supporting the top on two half-rims, was introduced by the Gillows firm in the early 19th century was featured on a 1832 design for a card-table for Mr Goudy, which cost £10 12s 5p (Westminster City Archive). The gadrooned feet that conceal the castors are also Gillows signature feature.

Fine original condition, pleasingly faded colour, original decoration.
